They’re just a mistype, really

because I always write angels

when I mean angles

and no matter what Da Vinci says

there’s nothing divine about maths


The first angel I ever saw was Michael

eating cereal with milk all over his face

I think the next one was Emma Thompson

she was a sexy angel though and I’m pretty sure they’re not really meant to be like that


I had a friend who said

her mother was saved by angels

who told her to stop her bike

before she rode it in front of a truck


And wasn’t Lucifer an angel

before he was kicked out of Heaven?

that’s hardly indicative of

angelic behaviour


The only angels I know personally

gaurd churches with blank stone eyes

that follow me when I walk by

and judge me for not walking in


So maybe they’re














or maybe they’re




a mistype
